Might putting on a few extra people at the checkpoints be more effective?

  • “Might putting on a few extra people at the checkpoints be more effective?”

    I doubt it. From my experience at the Atlanta airport (along with some other airports), it makes no difference whether 5 people are staffing the checkpoints or 50, the wait will be lengthy either way.

  • More checkpoints would be effective, but I don’t see how adding one or two more people at each checkpoint would be. This is a purposeful slowdown because TSA has had such bad reviews lately, letting contraband and weapons get through in security tests.

    • Actually, it doesn’t. Every time I play, I get many travelers saying thank you and that they enjoy the live music.
